Brecht: A Practical Handbook

By David Zoob

Paperback £12.99£10.39

EPUB £12.99£10.39

A bold and exciting new approach to Bertolt Brecht, making his theories and ideas about theatre accessible to a new generation of actors, directors, students and theatre-makers, and showing how they can be put into practice.

Theatre practitioner and academic David Zoob demystifies Brecht’s theories,  and offers an approach to study and performance that can be applied to a wide range of texts and theatre styles.

With close analysis of texts by writers including Shakespeare, Chekhov, Miller, Pinter, and of course Brecht himself, the author demonstrates how Brechtian techniques can provide practical pathways to exploring plays across the canon, as well as non-traditional forms of theatre.

Also included are dozens of exercises to help turn theory into practice, and explore what Brecht’s ideas mean for actors and directors, both in training and rehearsal.

Whether you’re a student, a teacher, an actor or a theatre-maker, this book will change the way you view and work with Brecht.

‘Zoob has engaged with Brecht’s many and varied principles for a politicised theatre and channelled them into a wide range of novel and innovative exercises that are applicable to a great many dramas and can equally interrogate devised material… Excellent ’ David Barnett, Professor of Theatre, University of York, and author of Brecht in Practice
